Let’s face it – Americans love to eat out! The average consumer spends approximately $2,500 a year dining out at restaurants according to the United States Department of Labor. NewME Accelerator Spring 2012 graduate, founder Chris Lyons wants to make that dining out experience a great one withPictureMenu.
PictureMenu is an iPhone and iPad app that allows users to view restaurant menus. It is the simplest way a restaurant can have their menu viewable on a smartphone or tablet.
There are other food apps out there like OpenTable, Yelp, and Foodspotting, but PictureMenu is approaching the food space a little differently. The app focuses on menus through photography with a goal to create valuable technology that restaurants can incorporate into their daily workflow.
“We allow any restaurant the opportunity to easily provide their restaurant’s menu on an iPhone without having to hire a developer,” Lyons says. “It’s only the first version and we are currently learning important wants and needs from the restaurants and users based off of the success we are already seeing.”
